  • Zov's Bistro Bakery & Cafe

    Zov's Bistro Bakery & Cafe

    It may be in another one of those stultifyingly dull neighborhood centers,where everything looks like everything else, but leave it up to James BeardAward-winner Zov Karamardian to shake up the Orwellian sameness with her brand of... More on Zov's Bistro Bakery & Cafe »

  • The Surfin' Cowboy

    The Surfin' Cowboy

    Surfin' Cowboy is a bar in Capistrano Beach. There's good tequila (though skip the ludicrously overpriced Casa Dragones at $50 a shot) and cocktails that were actually researched and don't rely on artificially flavored vodka. There's freshly... More on The Surfin' Cowboy »

  • Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa

    Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa

    Playas de Sinaloa is like most any other Sinaloa-style seafood restaurant-cheesy d├ęcor, light provided by neon beer signs, buxom waitresses in impossibly tight skirts and shirts that respectively rise too high and sink too low. But you're here... More on Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa »

  • Harvelle's Long Beach

    Harvelle's Long Beach

    Those in search of Harvelle's Long Beach location must descend through a musty staircase leading to a space underneath Congregation Ale House. Here, guests are greeted by a dark room with hardwood floors, and plush red booths accented by moody... More on Harvelle's Long Beach »

  • Buffalo Wild Wings

    Buffalo Wild Wings

    Buffalo Wild Wings was founded in 1982 when a guy from Buffalo, New York traveled to Ohio to judge an amateur figure skating competition and failed to find any wings that measured up to the ones at home. Now B-Dubs, as it likes to call itself,... More on Buffalo Wild Wings »

  • Club Fais Do-Do

    Club Fais Do-Do

Food Trucks

  • The Lime Truck

    The Lime Truck

    The Lime Truck's Daniel Shemtob and Jason Quinn know their repeat customers are not only open for something new, but they also expect it. Quinn is as apt to adopt a Filipino seasoning technique to make sugary-delicious tocino tacos one day as he... More on The Lime Truck »

  • Los Reyes Del Elote

    Los Reyes Del Elote

    Though they sell tacos, tortas, burritos and even raspados, the emphasis at this taco truck is on roasted corn-take a cue from the squat, dark man flipping cobs on a grill as if they were flapjacks. And keep some room for esquite, a wondrous... More on Los Reyes Del Elote »

  • Tacos El Chavito

    Tacos El Chavito

    Here is Orange County's best deal: two tasty tacos for a buck, with free, unlimited pineapple juice. Who cares that this taco truck is in the middle of Surf City's notorious Slater Slums-two tacos for a buck with free pineapple juice! More on Tacos El Chavito »

  • Cha FOR TEA

    Cha FOR TEA

    Liquid refreshment makes up most of the extensive menu at Cha for Tea, and the high point may be the lilac-hued, creamy taro-milk tea. Even the food at Cha features notes of tea. The subtle tea-flavored minced pork and the tender, stew-like,... More on Cha FOR TEA »

    • David C. Mau writes for OC Weekly

      Twice a month, legendary bartender/chef/restaurant insider Dave Mau pops by Stick A Fork In It to chime in about a random OC food or drink musing of his choice. Enjoy!! Winter here in the OC may lack the simple charms of a New England one but it does have its advantages. We don't get many snowball fights, sleigh rides or other such trappings but we are granted a great time to surf. When the water warms up just a tad and that wind turns around with just the right swell, truth be told, I'll trade all the mittens and hot cocoa in the world... More on Zubies Dry Dock »

    • Playwright Samuel Hunter's characters are ordinary people with ordinary problems: mortality, illness, loneliness, figuring out how to get from Point A to Point C with no idea where Point B is. But Hunter raises the ordinariness of his characters to extraordinary status. That's both a testament to his dramatic skill as well as the latest evidence that the stories we tell ourselves about Americans don't have to be confined—as so many of Hunter's predecessors and peers do—to cultured, articulate, big-city types who whine and fret about their...
